# 4-2 Quantum Theory - PowerPoint PPT Presentation

4-2 Quantum Theory. Planck’s Theory. Max Planck predicted accurately how the spectrum of radiation emitted by an object changes with temperature. Proposed that there is a fundamental restriction on the amounts of energy that an object emits or absorbs, called quantum. Means FIXED AMOUNTS.

### 4-2 Quantum Theory

• Max Planck predicted accurately how the spectrum of radiation emitted by an object changes with temperature.

• Planck’s Constant (h) = 6.6262 x 10 absorb in any amount.-34 J-s (Joule x second)

• Energies absorbed or emitted by atoms are quantized, which means that their values are restricted to certain quantities. Energy is not continuous

Example absorb in any amount.

• Imagine a car’s fundamental quantum of energy corresponds to a speed of 10 km/hr. If the car has 7 quanta of energy, it will have a speed of 70 km/hr. If the car has 9 quanta of energy, it will have a speed of 90 km/hr. This shows that a car can only move in multiples of 10 km/hr (in this case). Speeds such as 88 km/hr and 41 km/hr are impossible

The Photoelectric Effect absorb in any amount.

• In the photoelectric effect, electrons are ejected from the surface of a metal when light shines on it.

• Einstein realized that Planck’s idea of energy quanta could explain this.

• Said that Light consists of quanta of energy that behave like tiny particles, called PHOTONS
